Michael Pizmoht sworn in to the Laketran board

Laketran announces the swearing-in of Michael Pizmoht, of Willoughby Hills, as the newest member of the board. Appointed earlier this month by Lake County Board of Commissioners, Mr. Pizmoht was sworn in at the November 20 Laketran Board of Trustees meeting.

Pizmoht serves as the Director of Data Architecture at Sherwin Williams in Cleveland.

Noteworthy, is Mr. Pizmoht’s dedicated use of Laketran’s Park-n-Ride for his daily commute throughout his 16-year career. This experience uniquely positions him to understand the importance of efficient and sustainable transportation solutions, aligning with the goals of the Laketran.

Pizmoht will be filling the term of his late wife, Laura Pizmoht, who recently passed away. In recognition of her dedicated service to public service, Mr. Pizmoht will continue the legacy and contribute his skills and experience to the betterment of Laketran and Lake County.

Laketran President Brian Falkowski shared, “We are fortunate to have someone of Michael’s caliber joining the board. His commitment to our organization and his wealth of experience will undoubtedly contribute to the continued success of Laketran. We extend our deepest condolences for the loss of Laura and are honored to have Michael continue her work.”

Pizmoht’s term will extend until May 2025.

“I have always had an interest in public transportation and understand how important it is that Lake County residents have access to affordable transportation to get to work or to other important places,” shared Mr. Pizmoht. “It is an honor to serve the community and continue the work my wife started here.”

A volunteer, nine-member board appointed by the Lake County Commissioners governs Laketran. The board provides the agency fiduciary oversight and establishes policies to ensure services that best fit the needs of the community.

“Lake County is eternally grateful to Laura Pizmoht for her service to Laketran, and we are so blessed to have her husband Michael continue her great work,” shared Commissioner John Plecnik. “I was honored and humbled to nominate Michael for this very important role in our local community.”
